That water is so beautiful! Makes me think of an image from a game rather than real life because it looks so perfect.

That's Green Island, off the coast of Queensland, on the Barrier Reef.  Queensland is rediculous, if you haven't been you should go.  Seriously, everyone go visit Queensland ASAP.  I spent nearly 3 weeks with my mouth wide open and I've never been so pissed off at having to go back home in my life.  I actually looked into emigrating there.  Sadly I don't have any of the job skills that makes that process easier, I'd need to find an employer to sponsor me to move.

Only down side: 22 hours on planes is not fun.

Sure, Queensland can be nice if you like hot weather, but be aware that it is also by far the most right wing state in the country. They have the honour of producing Joh Bjelke-Petersen and Pauline Hanson.

Really?  Everyone seemed so nice and friendly and laid back it's hard to imagine them as right wing nutters.  As regular nutters yes, but not right wing ones lol.  I guess I'm just used to living in a part of the world where pricks are much easier to spot, as they wear their prickness with pride, 'coz they somhow think being a prick makes them awesome.

As for the heat, yeah its hot but it didn't feel as hot as I expected.  The temperature was regularly in the 30's (celcius) but I've experienced temperatures in the 20's that have felt hotter.  In Verona for example it didn't really get above 28 but I nearly fucking died (exaggerating, obviously) it felt so hot there.

I'm not really into music, so I don't see what bands look like all that often, which leads me to a question.  Are an inordinate number of the women in those bands objectively absurdly attractive, or do I apparently have a thing for musicians?

Both. Both are true.
Still can't think of a signature a year later.

So, a friend of mine and I went halves on a new camera, and it's awesome! He took me flying yesterday and had me take a bunch of pictures out the window, which was a whole lot of fun, but at the same time it was kinda terrifying. (Hey, you try holding a $900 camera you've literally never used before out an airplane window and see how calm you are.) They mostly came out fairly blurry, but this really is the first time I've used it, and the first time I've gotten to actually use a camera without an autofocus (also the whole plane thing), so with that in mind, I think I did okay on the focusing. Anyways, take a look at this!

Hey, it could be worse - you could have learned the accordion and joined a polka band!

So I've been screwing around with the focus and shutter speed a little bit here:

I really love the contrast between the faster shutter speed, where it looks like the turntable's off, and the slower one, where you can obviously tell it's moving. I think the first one in the album there might be the best..

I like the colour balance on the first one, although the detail on the record itself is better on some of the others.  Still, pretty good shots :)
